Healing Roots Pumpkin Bread
All things pumpkin in the fall is pretty much a necessity.
I went into Trader Joe’s the other day and with just about everything pumpkin flavored, I couldn’t help myself but to gather up the ingredients for a delicious pumpkin spice bread. Most pre-made or packaged pumpkin treats are loaded with sugar and I mean loaded. It’s almost frustrating that in order to even enjoy these sort of seasonal flavors we can’t have it in it’s natural-ish form.
When the sugar cravings hit or your hormones are all over the place, a big cookie or sugary & fat rich item is usually the go-to. This is the perfect treat or snack to help maintain healthy hormone levels (like insulin - which affect other hormones in your body)
So I’ve put together a recipe that I think you’ll enjoy, guilt-free. No processed sugar and pure pumpkin flavor.
My favorite way to enjoy is a with a big cup of tea and some solitude. Happy Fall!
